We have another Darlington throwback paint scheme unveiled. Ryan Blaney showed off his No. 12 Ford that he will race in the prestigious Southern 500 at the Darlington Raceway in September. Blaney’s car will resemble the paint scheme that his dad Dave Blaney drove from the 2002 to 2003 seasons with Jasper as the sponsor on the car.
In his two full season in the No. 77 entry with Penske, the elder Blaney scored one top five finish to go along with nine top 10’s. Blaney’s best finish was third in the spring race at Darlington in 2003. He also won his first Cup pole award in February of 2003 at Rockingham.
The younger Blaney was only eight when his dad raced this paint scheme.
